Posted By: Sean CGreat handle! Great steel! sharpens beautifully thanks to the carbon cladding, nice gyuto profile with 2.5\'~ flat and gentle sweep through the rest. the carbon cladding polishes much better than SS and just melts away on all my waterstones. this knife is very enjoyable to sharpen. My knife didnt have any over grind areas on the blade road however there was some significant under grind on the left blade road 1\'in from the tip which would need serious thinning if you want a zero grind to meet a shinogi line. This is no Konosuke Fujiyama in terms of perfect blade road and F/F but some work on your end will make this thing feel like one. Great steel, great blade, great price,
I use a 240 gyuto and i feel like I should have bought the 300mm instead of the 270 as every once in a while I am itching for an extra inch whenever I am slicing something large.
Every time i use this knife I am reminded how awesome it is!
